Just wondering if anyone has been working on a way to load each module into it's own appdomain so dynamic loading/unloading can work. From a previous response (back in 2005), I believe CAB currently does not support this.

These guys have a plugin control that would support this so I will see how easy it could be integrated into CAB - http://www.ms-inc.net/dotnet.aspx?ProductID=Plugins.

I've got a similar idea/query. This approach could be used to handle exceptions thrown in a module and recover gracefully - log details of exception, warn user and suggest that they restart, but unload the offending module and/or deregister all event and command subscriptions. I'm going to get cracking on implementing this, but if anyone else has done something similar, or is interested in collaborating on it, please let me know.

I'm looking to do the exact same thing - so if anybody has additional information or insight, please share...
